Eyeglasses and Exercise

I'm 41 yrs old, have lost about 40 lbs. and kept it off for over 2 yrs. I work out almost everday. I've worn contacts since I was a teenager, but had to start wearing reading glasses about a year ago. Now, I really think I need to give up the contacts and get glasses with bifocals (can't believe I'm saying that!!!) I'm just worried about working out, sweating, and picturing glasses sliding down my nose and bothering me. Anyone work out with glasses and how does it go for you? I suppose I could just put the contacts in when I work out, but kind of a pain....

I wear glasses but mostly for distance. When I sit on the bike in the gym, or walk on the treadmill, or use the elliptical machine, I usually take my glasses off. However I always wear them when I walk outside (I really do need to see the cars!) AND when I use weight machines or free weights. They don't bother me at when I do wear them.

Good luck.

I wear glasses, too. I don't experience any problems!

You should be fine. If you're worried, I'd buy a strap of some sort to hold them on just in case they slip off.

My glasses tend to fog up when my garage is cold and I'm running on the treadmill. I guess my face gets too hot!

They also slip when I do pushups or mountain climbers. I'm seriously considering changing to contacts because of it, but I have to agree with the previous poster in that I probably have ill-fitting glasses. They are plastic frames and don't have the little nose-pieces, so they slip pretty easy.

I guess it depends what kind of glasses you get and what sort of exercises you want to do.

Kisha, along with client services director Lisa Leone and production manager Cathi Christopher Wholesale Jerseys 2016 , were confined to a 10-by-10-foot room backstage at the Auditorium Theatre, working with two heat-press machines and thousands of names on clear film in folders
  • Dallas Cowboys Jersey
  • , organized by team.

    "Even though we pretty much knew who was going to go in the first round, we still made all the names
  • Detroit Lions Jersey
  • , just to be sure, because there always seems to be some anomaly every year," Kisha said.The trio typically make two jerseys for each player: One to hold on stage and another that's destined to be cut into pieces for trading cards
  • Houston Texans Jersey
  • .They bring six jerseys for every team — all with the No. 1
  • Oakland Raiders Jersey
  • on the back — to account for a team having an unlikely three first-round picks.

    Until 2014, they brought only four jerseys per team but in 2013, the Minnesota Vikings traded up and had three first-round draft picks, which meant six jerseys. When the Vikings made their move
  • Jacksonville Jaguars Jersey
  • , Stahls' grabbed an extra jersey from a mannequin in New York City's Radio City Music Hall, where the draft was held.The group gets early word of draft picks from an NFL representative as soon as the pick is submitted by the team
  • Miami Dolphins Jersey
  • . Then the two-minute drill begins: Leone grabs the correct name from a box — this year the box contained 1,600 names
  • Minnesota Vikings Jersey
  • and team possibilities — and hands it off to be pressed by Kisha and Christopher, in a play they've run repeatedly.

    Names are only prepared for first-round prospects who have confirmed they will attend the event
  • New Orleans Saints Jersey
  • . Thursday night, 25 athletes attended.Stahls' gets the list of confirmed attendees about two weeks in advance.Each team has its own unique font NFL , which means 32 versions of every name.The company spends at least six weeks preparing for the event.

    Despite the pressure
  • New York Giants Jersey
  • , the company considered Thursday just another day on the job. Friday, the Stahls' team was on-site at the NFL Shop in Draft Town as part of a larger team that produces on-demand personalized apparel for fans
  • New York Jets Jersey
  • ."This year went really great," Kisha said. "You're always nervous though, you know? You've still got butterflies. And (you're) happy when it's done."
